I wish I had a more exciting weekend to share but I actually don't. It was calm with not too much going on, which is the way I like it as we all head into the busy holiday season. The most exciting thing I did was watch Avatar. P.S. There are at least 7 people on Twitter that I know who have no interest in seeing it. I'm surprised I was able to sit still that long myself.
What we didn't do again this weekend was shopping for the house.
The next big thing our combined list (yes, he's involved) is purchasing bedroom furniture. While we put it on hold this weekend because the BF went to the Browns game, I stopped in a few stores but nothing caught my eye.
Have you ever shopped for this before? Holy expensive. I have expensive taste which really shouldn't surprise me at this point. Put me in a room with no price tags and I guarantee I will find the most expensive thing in the room by default. There must be some hidden radar that all women have when it comes to shopping because I can't be the only one with this issue, right?
Anyway, back to shopping. We decided on mattress we like. That was the easy part. The BF laid on a few and was happy with one. Well, I felt the need to pull a superman by getting a running start to jump on the beds, as if it would help me pick a comfortable mattress. The BF was discussing pricing and bug bed covers while I was holding a very scientific test on two of the mattresses via running and jumping.
Enter shopping for furniture. We went to two places and I was very underwhelmed. Extremely underwhelmed not to mention it still cost $2,000 for underwhelming furniture. Everything was very traditional, oak wood and too large for our bungalow slanted bedroom walls.
While we haven't made a final decision just yet, there is one thing I know for sure:
I want this headboard from West Elm or an upholstered head board like this. Now, if we can just find and agree on the rest of the furniture, we can check that room off our list!
